Conversations about socially responsible investing are difficult because they combine facts with beliefs. Proponents of socially responsible investing believe that combining social goals with investments does good; opponents believe that such combinations are unwise or even illegitimate. In this article, I try to separate facts from beliefs. I report that the Domini Social Index, an index of socially responsible stocks, did as well as the S&P 500 Index over the 1990-98 period. Socially responsible mutual funds did worse than the S&P 500 and the DSI but no worse than conventional mutual funds.
